     7-6-4423. Sales for delinquent taxes when municipality collects municipal tax. (1) (a) In a city or town that collects its own taxes or special assessments when any taxes or assessments become delinquent, a tax sale may not be held by the city or town unless the city treasurer or town clerk, within 10 working days after the date on which the taxes or assessments become delinquent, certifies the delinquent taxes and assessments to the county treasurer of the county in which the city or town is situated.
     (b) The certificate must contain:
     (i) the description of each lot or parcel of land on which any tax or assessment has become delinquent;
     (ii) the name and address of the person taxed or assessed;
     (iii) the date when the tax or assessment became delinquent;
     (iv) the amount of the delinquent tax or assessment, and the penalty to be added, if any.
     (c) If any special assessment is payable in installments and any installment becomes delinquent, the amount of the delinquent installment must be included in the certificate. If the city or town council, by the adoption of an appropriate resolution, declares the total assessment remaining unpaid to be delinquent, as provided in 7-12-4182, then that total must be included in the certificate.
     (2) Upon receipt of the certificate, the county treasurer shall enter the delinquent taxes and assessments in the delinquent tax list of the county, and the county treasurer in selling property for delinquent taxes shall include all city and town delinquent taxes and assessments. There may be only one sale for each piece of property. The sale must cover the aggregate of the city, town, county, and state taxes and special assessments, including penalties, interest, and costs provided by law.
